Freedom from orthotics – Freedom from foot pain
Orthotics are often not needed because your feet can improve naturally with foot mobilisation therapy (FMT) and corrective exercises. You may actually have joints in your foot and ankle that are misaligned. It is these misaligned joints that often lead to foot & leg pain. Those misaligned joints can be corrected using gentle foot mobilisation. When this happens, foot pain reduces. If you have been advised to wear orthotics because you are experiencing foot / leg symptoms take a closer look at some of our success stories.
In example below this 42 year old male had been suffering from chronic ankle pain for more than 6 months. Note in the ‘before’ pictures the excessive rolling in of the ankles and flat feet appearance. In the ‘after’ photographs there has been substantial improvement in foot and ankle alignment. This was achieved using Natural Corrective Podiatry techniques used at the Foot Posture Centre.
In the example below you will see how this 65 yr old person had rolled in ankles or flat feet and this was causing her bunion pain. She also needed to wear orthotics to help manage the pain.
Note how in the after photographs, the ankles are straighter and are not rolled in as they used to be. There is no bunion pain and she no longer feels the need to wear orthotics.
There is no doubt that poor foot posture can cause and contribute to other conditions such as knee, hip and lower back pain. It is great that health professionals understand that the foot is the foundation of the body. When the foot is in poor alignment the whole body will eventually suffer. However, what most health professional don’t realise is that there is a natural alternative available and your feet do not need orthotics in the majority of cases.
Freedom to wear shoes you want
Imagine having the freedom to wear the shoes you like without orthotics. Initially when you are weaning yourself off orthotics you will need to stay wear shoes that are generally more supportive. As your feet become stronger with the exercises that we give you along with the foot mobilisation you will be able to wear shoes that are less supportive. These less supportive shoes include slip-ons, thongs, ballet flats and minimalist/barefoot type footwear.
Freedom to walk barefoot without pain
Are you unable to walk barefoot because your feet are too painful on the hard floor? Maybe your heels are extremely painful with the first few steps you take. Well Natural Corrective Podiatry helps correct the underlying cause of your condition enabling the body heal to itself……no orthotics, no surgery and no medication. In the meantime try a simple exercise such as rolling your foot over a rolling pin or a tennis ball first thing in the morning and also in the evening. This helps increase blood flow to the foot and improves mobility.
